Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva likely to be out on the sidelines again due to fresh injury
Lucas Leiva could be facing another lengthy spell out on the sidelines after limping out of Liverpool's 2-2 draw with Manchester City on Sunday.
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers was forced to replace Lucas with Jonjo Shelvey after just four minutes of play at Anfield after the Brazilian midfielder was seen clutching his thigh.
Lucas, 25, only recently made his comeback following eight months out with anterior cruciate ligament damage in his left knee.
''It's incredible, he's worked so hard, been brilliant in pre-season, and then in the warm-up he felt his thigh muscle when he took a shot,'' Rodgers said on Lucas after Sunday's game. ''We'll have to assess it tomorrow.''
